[SOLD] Pentax-A SMC 50mm f/1.4 lens

Price $129 (Now only $110 plus shipping); world-wide shipping available, but prices will be higher, please ask.

This is a very nice lens that I picked up from a fellow forum member but just haven't worked into my "rotation". I am trying to keep only the lenses I use, minimizing clutter and all that to keep my wife happy, and can't really justify all the 50s I have. So, maybe this one can be yours!

It is in great condition except for a dent/ding on the filter ring, which has made screwing filters in and out a bit tough. I have an empty filter ring screwed in, though, and this allows quick use of all filters, caps and hoods without any vignetting. It even provides a little lens-hood-like shading. But it looks a little funny. Otherwise, glass is clear without scratched haze or fungus. Focus is smooth, aperture moves crisply through all settings and "A" contacts work fine. The rest of the exterior is in pretty good shape too. I will include genuine Pentax front and rear caps, although they may not be the exact ones that came with the lens new.

The above condition is guaranteed, if you find the lens in any way other than as described I am happy to refund your purchase price. International buyers are welcome as above, please inquire about shipping costs. Any ask any questions you may have! Thanks for your interest.

ps if you need more views of the lens I can do it. Sample shots are pretty open, for demonstration of the amazing bokeh this lens can produce, with good subject sharpness. The second one is even a little blurred because I had SR set to 500mm (oops!) but check out that background blur.

Well, perhaps I priced it too high. An FA 50/1.4 is up to $250 new now, and over $200 used... but then again there is the filter issue. Price reduced to $110 plus shipping ($6 CONS). Let me know!

I can't say I miss mine since I replaced it with an AF equivalent but it sure gave me great performances. There are thing only an f1,4 will do. Free bump for a great lens!
